Crypto mining and cyber crime are at the top of the list for headline-grabbing attacks. Want to see how it’s actually done?
The reality of what happens on a day-to-day basis is the breakdown of people and process. Join us on May 23rd for a live simulation of hackers bypassing security controls and executing a crypto mining attack. Watch how a security engineer is able to quickly identify the attack, and then learn the tips you can take home to improve your own security posture.
Many companies approach compliance activities with the forthcoming European General Data Protection Regulation REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 as a purely legal matter. But this is a very shortsighted approach. Compliance with the GDPR is becoming a necessary business requirement. Only companies that will be able to reassure business partners and consumers regarding their alignment to the new EU Regulation will stay competitive in the digital market. Moreover, if performed in a strategic way, compliance with the GDPR enables businesses to process personal data in manifold ways and thus to extract meaningful information from them in order to better serve actual and future customers, as well as to improve efficiency.
During the webinar Prof. Dr. Paolo Balboni (Business Lawyer, Partner at ICT Legal Consulting) will present a strategic approach to GDPR compliance aimed at mitigating the legal risk and maximising the benefits of data processing activities.
Many customers have exposed their data in the cloud without proper security solutions. Securing data in the cloud to prevent exposures can present challenges to all enterprises. Despite the rapidly growing need for cloud-native visibility into behavior and activity across AWS environments, many companies are still in the beginning stages learning about best practices and security solutions for AWS. They want to know the best approach and how to get there.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Common AWS security concerns
- 5 steps you can take to boost your AWS security posture
- How to implement these steps
Achieving Type 2 SOC 2 compliance with zero exceptions was no easy feat for Threat Stack. However, rather than implementing stringent security protocols at every point of production, they implemented and improved SecOps processes to make it happen.

- The SockemBot, ticketing workflows, and other SOC 2 innovations
- Developer-approved operational changes for code and ticket mapping
- The SOC 2 business benefits get to reap now
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into effect on May 25, 2018. The requirements of GDPR are substantial and the penalties for non-compliance are severe. The new regulation will require companies across the globe to rethink how they store and handle customer data. Has your organization implemented the legal and technological controls required to comply?
In this webinar, Daniele Catteddu, CTO of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and Marina Segal, Lead Compliance Product Manager at Dome9, will discuss key challenges and best practices to address GDPR requirements. The webinar will cover compliance automation solutions available to help organizations achieve GDPR compliance and meet the May deadline.
Topics we will cover:
-Code of Conduct & Certification for GDPR Compliance
-Where the most likely GDPR violations will occur
-The impact of running workloads in the public cloud on GDPR
-Best practices to simplify and speed up compliance
How does your organization defend against the latest O365 and AWS threats including KnockKnock and Ghostwriter?
Join CSA and McAfee to see an autopsy of two recent cloud threats: KnockKnock (O365) and Ghostwriter (AWS) uncovered CSA by our Cloud Threats Lab. We’ll share practical guidance on how to address the rapidly evolving cloud threat landscape, starting with user behavior analysis
and leveraging the “network effect”.
Specifically, we will discuss how Information Security teams can:
• Catch third parties logging into corporate cloud service using stolen or misplaced login credentials to steal valuable corporate data
• Detect malicious or negligent insider stealing or unintentionally exposing data from O365 and AWS
• Identify malicious administrators accessing data out of policy, intentionally degrading security settings, or creating dummy accounts for unauthorized third party access
My mother was washing dishes in the kitchen when the glass window she was looking out shattered in front of her…she was OK but unfortunately my curve ball has never gotten better. The second law of thermodynamics dictates that you can't put together something that has fallen apart. There was no way I could put that shattered glass back together. The second law of thermodynamics applies to breaches. There is no way to go back once you have been breached. We will tell you what are the emerging threats, how to prepare, and how to proactively manage an ongoing breach. We will cover the following types of breaches:
- Phishing Scams
- Buffer Overflow
- Password Hacking
- Downloading Free Software
- Fault Injection
With ERP vendors reporting double-digit growth in cloud revenue year over year, many organizations are faced with the challenging task of planning a cloud migration of their most critical assets. Because these systems are typically more complex, and also house the organization's critical data and processes, special precautions must be taken when building a migration plan.
During this webcast JP Perez-Etchegoyen, CTO of Onapsis Inc and Shamun Mahmud, Research Analyst at CSA, will present their key findings from the recently released white paper, "The State of Enterprise Resource Planning Security in the Cloud." Attendees will learn:
- Security requirements of ERP and Business-Critical Applications
- Cloud adoption trends
- Challenges of migrating ERP solutions to the cloud
- Common Security and privacy risks in cloud based ERP applications
o SaaS ERP Applications
o IaaS ERP Deployments
o ERP extensions in PaaS cloud
- Conclusions and key take-aways
Far too often, testing software for security flaws falls into the “nice-to-have” category, taking a backseat to the demands of the marketplace and inflexible feature release schedules. In addition to the expense of hiring an outside security testing team, testing for and fixing obscure security bugs is a brake on an engineer’s ability to put new code in the hands of their customers. Fortunately, there is a workaround to this dilemma that will allow you to promote application security awareness while helping to reduce security bugs in your applications.
An internal bug hunt contest - in which your employees compete for prizes by finding and reporting security bugs - enables you to harness the creativity and problem-solving skills of your workforce while reducing security bugs in your applications. It can also help promote a culture of security awareness - without a large security testing budget.
An internal bug hunt contest can you help you:
• Find and remediate vulnerabilities before external entities can exploit them
• Provide a safe platform for your application owners to test for security bugs
• Promote application security awareness
• Engage employees outside of the central security team who want to explore the security domain
In this webcast, you will learn how an internal bug bounty program can help you find security flaws in your applications before criminals or spies, while improving the security culture at your company.
